Fit for the Rebellion

Her Universe Hot Topic Finn Jacket Dressy Outfit

Now that one big event is over, it’s on to the next big event – Rogue One! Hopefully everyone got their Rogue One tickets the other day – if not, you better hurry! I haven’t actually decided what I’ll be wearing when I go camp out in line, but isn’t it great to have so many options? I mean, I could wear a full on costume or just wear a regular Star Wars shirt. Or I could even do a casual cosplay with this cool Finn jacket (formerly Poe’s)! Throw on a black tee,  black jeans, and boots and you’re pretty much good to go! And even if you don’t go the casual route, you can easily dress this jacket up with a frilly skirt, heels, and some shiny jewelry for your next holiday party! I am actually thrilled that this jacket came back in stock since I missed it the first time (I was waiting for the sale!) and the quality, fit, and design is everything I thought it would be. So whether you go casual or dressy, this jacket is fit for any rebel.

Cosplay for a Cure 2016

han_insta16
When life gives you lemons, you cosplay! I started selling cosplay prints last year after being diagnosed and am going to continue the tradition of opening my store for the rest of this month. This year, all sales will go to the National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative as I was personally inspired by this post and wanted to help out. I will personally match all sales I get this month and on top of that, all prints are buy 2, get one free! Also, as I’m still adding some new prints, so please let me know what other prints you might like to see!

Good Motivators

Star Wars Droids Black White Dress

It’s crazy to think that exactly one year ago, my world was turned upside-down when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s still hard to even type that out today – in fact, sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago that I was dealing with all that stress. I was in total disbelief, felt so overwhelmed, and had no idea how I was going to take this on. Well, as you can see, I made it out A-OK and learned a lot about myself – one of the biggest things being that I am much stronger than I realize. I think that’s one thing that a lot of survivors will tell you – that this disease F’ing sucks and going through it is no piece of cake, but in the end, you come out so much mentally stronger than you were before.

Galactic Heroines

Elhoffer Design Galactic Rey Scavenger DressHopefully by now you’ve all seen the Rogue One trailer and liked it as much as I did. I can’t wait for this movie to come out, especially because it’s the first standalone movie and not a direct prequel or sequel of any of the other films. It’s pretty crazy to think that there will be a new Star Wars movie out every single year until 2020 and on top of that a new Star Wars Land opening up at Disneyland! And here’s a tip – if you look closely while riding Thunder Mountain, you can actually see some of the construction going on for it! But back to Rogue One.. Continue reading

Her Universe Fashion Show 2016

Her Universe Lego Dress

Can you believe it? A dress made of Legos!! Designed by Andrew MacLaine and Nathan Sawaya.

I still can’t believe San Diego Comic-Con is over (yes, I have major con depression and con withdrawal) and I don’t even know where to begin in order to sum up the fun time I had there so let’s start with the obvious – the Her Universe Fashion Show. Obviously I love geek fashion so this is a must-see event for me. I even told some friends that this event is like New York Fashion Week for geeks, am I right? The competition was seriously fierce this year and as someone who participated in the show last year, I know how much incredible detail and work went into every garment that walked down the runway – from every bead, every appliqué, every hand made accessory – even down to the shoes. I know how much blood, sweat, and tears went into every stitch so hats off too all the amazing designers. There’s not much else to say, so on with the photos!

See You at San Diego Comic-Con!

 
 
It’s that crazy time of year again where your first world problems consist of things like “My feet hurt from comic-con” or “The food in Hall H is terrible” or maybe “There aren’t enough pokestops around the convention!” This may be my 17th-ish SDCC, but it feels just as new and exciting as the first. Unlike other cons where I might spend most of my time cosplaying, this is the con where my focus is about exclusives, panels, checking out what’s new on the floor, and just having a great time with friends. Of course, there will still be cosplay. With all that’s happened this year, I’m in a very “YOLO” mood these days and decided to finally cosplay a character I have always wanted to be, but never had the guts to – Psylocke. I’ll be wearing the X-Men Apocalypse version, which I love because of the added armor. And with my recent hair cut, I also threw in a last minute Jubilee, roughly based on the Kotobukiya figure, but with some ’80s elements. It’s gonna be a fun time so I hope to see you there! 

Postcards from Jakku

Her Universe Rey Shirt and Laser Cut Skirt

There’s something very geometric and almost mathematical about laser cut clothing. Maybe it’s the precision, symmetry, or just the aesthetic of it, who knows. I just know that my logical mind loves to wear it! I recently picked up this laser cut skirt and immediately knew it would go perfectly with my new Rey shirt from Her Universe. If you haven’t seen their latest line of tees, be sure to check them out! I love that they all have a more feminine design aesthetic and this one even reminds me of a postcard that I might receive from someone on Jakku that might say “Hi from Jakku! BB-8 says hello!” ^.^ Continue reading
